Join the Theatre Department for a wild ride of a musical.

In this dark comedy, the Saint Cassian High School Chamber Choir boards the Cyclone roller coaster, dying minutes later when the front axle breaks, sending them to their tragic demise. When they awake in a strange purgatory, a mechanical fortune teller invites each to tell the story of a life interrupted—with the promise of a prize like no other—a chance for one of them to return to life.

Ride the Cyclone runs April 21-23 and 28-30, 2023 in the Jesse H. and Mary Gibbs Jones Theater. Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30 p.m., Sunday matinees at 2:00 p.m.

Tickets are free for Southwestern students, faculty, and staff. Discounts are available for teachers, students, military, and seniors.
